Logan Poignantly Closes the Wolverine Saga

logangraphic

“Logan” (2017) is the tenth installment in the X-men series, and the third and final Wolverine movie directed by James Mangold, and written by James Mangold, Scott Frank and Michael Green. Mangold also directed a previous Wolverine movie, “The Wolverine” (2013). The movie features Hugh Jackman as the Wolverine, Patrick Stewart as Professor X and Dafne Keen as Laura.

In a dystopian future, a Wolverine (Logan) whose regenerative powers are dwindling cares for a weak Professor X in a hideout near the Mexican-American border. He surrenders himself to alcoholism and works as a chauffeur to get by. One day, he is tasked with delivering a young mutants with powers similar to himself to the Canadian border, but unbeknownst to him, she is being pursued by dark forces

The movie arrived in theaters on March 3, 2017, releasing on 1,068 screens. As of March 5, “Logan” has grossed $88.3 million in the United States and Canada, and $152.5 million in other territories for a worldwide gross of $237.8 million, against a production budget of $97 million. “Logan” is the biggest release of 2017 and the fifth biggest release by Fox.

“Logan” earned a 93% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a score of 8.7/10 on IMDb and a rating of 4/5 stars by Empire. The movie is “the best Wolverine movie yet: grown-up, ballsy, character-driven and grounded. It feels right that it should be the last one, but it also feels a bit of a shame,” wrote Dan Jolin from Empire.

“Logan” is largely a standalone, character-driven story that contains many references to the X-Men film universe, making it a great movie for longtime fans of the series, but it still welcomes newcomers or those unfamiliar with X-Men mythology at the same time. The movie is deeply emotional yet gruesomely violent, exploring  “Logan’s animalistic killer instinct and his struggle to just be a good, decent human being is explored in depth and at length,” said Jolin. “Logan” sends off the Wolverine series on a dramatic high note.

I certainly recommend “Logan” to longtime fans and newcomers of the X-men series alike. It’s a film for everyone because “this entry in the X-Men series is amazingly moving and grown-up, elevating the superhero genre to new heights,” said Jeffrey Anderson, a writer for Common Sense Media.
